The Alley Cats Review


OK
Think of Radley Metzger as Russ Meyer without the stones. And think of The Alley Cats as Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! without all the violence and the nudity.

Shot within a year of each other, both films were scandalous during their eras, but Alley Cats is practically PG-13 by today's standards.The story is minimal and without much substance: A couple about to get married aren't getting along so well, so he has an affair with another woman, and she has an affair with a man. Her affair doesn't turn out so well, so she hits up another woman for a lesbian encounter. How will it end?

The Oblong Box Review


Terrible
The oblong box is of course a casket, but who's inside? Unfortunately I stopped caring about 15 minutes into this overheated and poorly constructed horror miss, an awfully vapid something or other about human experimentation and strange family relations. A real low point for Price and Lee.

De Sade Review


OK
There's only a twitch of irony in seeing 2001's ultimate good guy, Keir Dullea, star as one of the biggest sons of bitches in all history, the Marquis de Sade, in his biography. In a bizarre film that alternates orgies and madness with dream sequences and narrative about the Frenchman's life in the 1700s (most of it spent in prison). Essentially the film is Caligula set 1700 years later, complete with washed-out photography and no-name actresses willing to show off their, ahem, talents.

Carmen, Baby Review


OK
Uta Levka gets the honors in this go-round to be Radley Metzger's oft-naked vamp. In this rendition of the classic opera and novel Carmen (dig the title), Carmen is a bit of a tramp who woos a cop who's trying to arrest her and then a rock star, despite the fact that she's married. Jealousy rears its head eventually, with disastrous consequences. (Hell, if you saw the way Carmen could dance -- it's just her and a long-necked Chianti bottle -- you'd feel the same!)

Metzger earns points for picking good source material, but in his typical fashion he meanders all over the place en route to telling his story. He gets around to it eventually, but there are so many cocked eyebrows and sultry glances that it's easy to miss the actual plot amidst all the sexy subtlety.
